The dark side of the Moon revealed – A NASA animation solves the mystery[ Watch Video]Tasnuva Rahim (Author) Published Date : Feb 09, 2015 11:17 IST
All these years of human history and revolution we are still mystified about the other side of the moon. We were unable to reach out to what was at one point mistakenly termed as the dark side of the moon until the year 1959. That is when the Soviet Probe Luna 3 has its first expedition around the Earth s satellite.
Finally, NASA has been able to release a time lapsing animation of the moon in a full 29.5 days stage by stage. This is something that we have never encountered before. The outcome was revolutionary and is a must watch for everyone.
One may expect to see weird objects flying around or maybe a colonization of aliens, but don t get too excited. The back side of the moon isn t all too different what we have seen on occasions like a cloudless night. It is round like one would expect, is gray in color and has spots on it although this side has comparatively much less spots than the side that is being visualized from the earth.
The most astonishing part is the second view in the animation video. It demonstrated that the earth is a beautiful little marble like ball twirling around in a fast motion over the period of one month. It seems fast because it is time-lapsed animation.
Another amazing part is the visibility of the sun as a small dot racing across the screen just when the moon s other side goes into absolute darkness.
Brace yourself to take a look at one of the most remarkable video ever to have been seen in the history of the earth or shall I say moon
